Silver for Gold (the Odyssey of Edie Sedgwick) ...

hey hey! tonight i'm dining out with my awesome pal joey and then we're heading down to the met theatre to catch a brand new musical/play called **silver for gold (the odyssey of edie sedgwick)** which just opened last night and was written and directed by david j (of bauhaus and love & rockets fame) it sounds highly interesting and off-beat and besides anything that relates to andy warhol and edie sedgwick is right up my alley! when i return home later this evening i will try and update this post with my initial thoughts on the show! i hope everyone else has themselves a truly kick-ass friday night (and is able to sleep late tomorrow - don't forget this weekend daylight savings time kicks in - so unfortunately we'll be losing an hour of sleep but at least it'll be lighter outside in the evening) popbytes over & out for now...xxoo!

David J writes and directs the world premiere production of Silver For Gold (The Odyssey Of Edie Sedgwick) at The Met Theatre in Hollywood, CA, beginning an exclusive two-week engagement on March 6th, 2008. Based on the life of Edie Sedgwick - Andy Warhol's brilliant muse - the stage production explores one of the most charismatic yet misunderstood figures in popular culture. Starring multifaceted performer Monique Jenkinson ( aka Fauxnique ) as Edie and Steven Oliver Price ( founder of the Ronin Ensemble ) as Norich, the wounded healer, Silver For Gold traces the heroine's dazzling rise and eventual downward spiral in a mythological theatrical experience that is part one-woman show, part chamber rock concert replete with avant-garde minimalist staging and video imagery.
